    Default Help blue smoke.....

    Hi
    Can anyone help I have a 1.9 cdti 150 auto only had it 3 weeks it's done 87,000 miles on a 58 plate.

    Have just driven around 15miles at about 50-70 and once I had stopped I noticed some blue smoke, it appeared to be drifting from the front of the car to the rear (could see it through passenger windows) it's not cooled down enough to get under it yet, but I think it was coming from under the engine Bay Area.....anyone have any ideas?? There's a strong smell but I can't put my finger on what it is, potentially fumes I think. The car was running at 85degrees which is normal I guess....any suggestions?

    Possibly the front flexi pipe of the exhaust system mate. Symptoms are as you described and very very common on these cars

    Cheers buddy, any idea on costs? Or is it likely I could change it when upgrading the full system? It's under warranty but I want to fit a new system soon, homer I think ill just get them to fix it for the time being.
